Training content creation and program administration

Created content for, and

manages, the highly-successful

GVF training program (10,000+ trainees, VSAT, marine, mobile)

Training program mandate

GVF members directed GVF to establish a VSAT installer

training program in 2002

Initial mandate was to build a global cadre of training

technicians available to the industry, to enhance the quality

and reputation of VSAT as a solution.

Subsequently interference prevention was added as a priority

By 2005 volunteers had trained about 250 students in

classes in US and Africa

We think there are 20,000-40,000 people in the world installing VSATs

How to scale up and deliver globally?

GVF Basic Hands On Skills Test (HOST-B)

Supplementary instructor-led classes

Interference-prevention emphasis:

Beam balance pointing (prevent ASI)

Cross-pol alignment

Connector attachment (prevent re-radiation)

HOST + EXTRA HANDS-ON TRAINING

-Typical Basic HOST Exam takes 3-4 hours, depending upon Student Experience.

-Many organizations want their staff to

receive Extra Hands-On Training for the specific equipment used.

-GVF/S2C2’s Bangkok Facility is a “magnet”

for small groups of students/staff for specific, ad-hoc Hands-On Training.

-GVF/S2C2 routinely travel to the customers’ locations for larger groups of students/staff.

HANDS-ON/SPECIFIC LBA TRAINING

-Many organizations want their staff to

receive Specific Training for the specific

satellites used.

-The GVF On-Line Course Material is

excellent in providing the basic theory of

Geo/Meo/Leo “Birds”.

-GVF/S2C2’s Bangkok Facility has in-house

experts for Advanced Link Budget (LBA) Training for all “Birds”.

-GVF/S2C2 routinely travel to the customers’
